Netflix: 15 Best Movies To Watch Before They Leave In July

Bring It On

Summer might not be traditional binge-watching season - it’s so bright and sunny outside! But if you want to catch these movies before they leave Netflix, it might be time to close the curtains and get watching… because they are on the way out this month!

The only TV series leaving the streaming service in July is Real Husbands of Hollywood (which departs July 8), so there’s no need to take in entire TV series before they disappear… however, there are a couple of movie franchises that are on the way out, so fans of Bring It On and Lethal Weapon might want to dedicate a couple days to a movie marathon. Other than that, pop the corn, get settled in, and enjoy these great films before they are gone.

15. An Honest Liar

An Honest Liar

This feature documentary focuses on the fascinating life of James ‘The Amazing’ Randi. A magician and escape artist, Randi also devoted his life to exposing frauds - faith healers, psychics and con-artists. Well-received on the festival circuit, this is definitely a documentary worth watching.

14. Before Midnight

The third movie in this trilogy about the stages of love and romance, Before Midnight takes the same couple who met on a train in Vienna in Before Sunrise and re-visits them two decades later to explore how love changes after a long marriage. Sometimes uncomfortable, it is still beautiful - although the first two films (Before Sunrise and Before Sunset) are not available to stream, making a marathon impossible.
